About This Research Group

Finance is an applied branch of economics that deals with how individuals and organizations allocate financial resources overtime. Ivey's Finance faculty is particularly focused on research topics in corporate finance, investments and behavioural finance.

In corporate finance, faculty are actively conducting research in many topics including initial public offerings (IPOs); capital structure; corporate governance; executive compensation; international finance and cross-listings. The study of investments is centred on financial decisions of households and professional investors and how they impact prices in financial markets.

In behavioral finance, Ivey faculty are using insights from individual and social psychology to deepen  understanding of financial decision-making in the area of investment and behavioural finance including household investment and saving decisions; strategies of successful value investors; the value of financial advice; market microstructure; pre and post retirement financial decisions.
